---- — ATKINSON —“We’re goin’ to the zoo, zoo, zoo. How about you, you, you? You can come too, too, too. We’re goin’ to the zoo, zoo, zoo.” are lyrics by Raffi that you can jam to when you are on your way to the Franklin or Stone Zoo. We have plenty of passes available and this is a great time of year to have a visit. This library pass admits six people at $6.00 per adult and $4.00 per child. Reservations can be made online on our webpage or over the phone. If you note that the pass is not available for a particular date, do not despair. Call us and we’ll give you a pass that does not expire until June 30 and that you can use on any day before July 1.
A dozen t/weens gathered on May 1 to discuss a book, “The Sacrifice”, and ending up debating over whether or not the death penalty should exist. Much candy was consumed and there was a lot of thoughtful discussion. Your child in grade 5-8 is welcome to join us on June 5 at 6:30 p.m., as we review Jordan Sonnenblick’s “Drums, Girls & Dangerous Pie”. Stop by and grab a copy for your t/ween, and we won’t be surprised if you read it and enjoy it, too.
Got books? We Do! Stop by on Sat., May 18, from 8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. We’ll have more than books--baked goods, flea items, movies, music and more. The early bird gets the best picks! See you there.
We will be closed Memorial Day weekend (Sat., May 25 through Mon., May 27.) Two day loan items checked out on Thurs., May 23 will not be due back until May 28. Take advantage of the extension and have a safe and happy holiday weekend.
